While most people do not really enjoy working out their legs, I feel just the opposite; for me, legs and shoulders day is something I really look forward to. Since I tend to workout once per day, this means I get to hit the legs twice per week (not including cardio or spin classes). I have always found that working out and growing the legs are key to me reaching my ultimate fitness goals. Think of the fish tank scenario. If you want the fish to grow, you need to give it room by providing it a larger swimming area. Similarly, if you want your body’s muscles to grow, you cannot forget to workout the largest muscles in your body, your legs! I love pushing my legs to the limits, and they tend to be pretty strong, but this did not happen overnight. So, do yourself a favor or two and don’t skip your leg workout days. Show them some love and attention; you will thank yourself later!
